Lucy

Age: 1 1/2 years
Gender: female
Breed: min pin/husky mix breed
Does well with: children, dogs, & cats
Special Needs: Patient Men
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

We just found out that Lucy was previously a Raise the Woof dog who was re-homed instead of returned to the rescue. After talking to Raise the Woof, Lucy will be staying with us! Lucy is a 1.5 year old min pin Husky mix. She was surrendered to the pound in Dickinson and moved to us. She is good with kids, good with other dogs, but is not a big fan of all men. She did good with the few we introduced her too but did not like the man that surrendered her for what ever reason. She needs a very patient man to work with her and owners that understand her limits due to her fear from past abuse. She’s sort of a hoot and is very vocal while playing (gotta love those husky voices!)

Athena

Age: 2.5 Yrs
Gender: Female
Breed: Cane Corso
Does well with: Large Dogs
Special Needs: Patient Owner

 

 

Sweet Athena is a 2.5 year old Cane Corso. She is fixed and up to date on all of her shots. Athena has had a rough start on life and has been in behavioral rehabilitation training for the past 6 months. She has made amazing progress but needs a very patient owner who will continue to work with her on her training for probably the rest of her life. When she came to us she was terrified of men, and was not potty trained at all. She has over come her fear of fast hand movements and raised voices, she knows her basic commands. Athena is an amazing dog who has come a long ways in the last 6 months and is looking for an owner to go the rest of the way with. She is fostered outside of Williston. We will not adopt Athena out to anyone who resides in city limits or any city with a breed ban as this breed can be subject to a breed ban due to their looks. We would also love for her new owner to continue to work with her trainer so she can continue progressing in a positive manner.

Lucy

Age: 3 yrs
Gender: Female
Breed: Bulldog
Does well with: dogs & children
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $300 + tax

 

 

Lucy is fully potty trained and kennel trained. She does well with kids, most other dogs and cats. She has one bad habit and that is peeing on blankets. If there is a blanket left on the floor she will pee on it, marking her territory. She's very sweet but very stubborn! She loves car rides and baths. Her adoption fee is a bit higher due to the complex issues that the breed can have.

CHaos

Age: 10 months
Gender: male
Breed: Heeler/pitbull mix
Does well with: dogs & children
Special Needs: N/A
Adoption Fee: $100 + tax

 

 

He has a ton of energy and would love to motivate you for a daily walk, or he can even be your adventure buddy on a hike! He’s good with other dogs so if you have a friend for him to play with, even better! He’s up to date on shots so you don’t have to worry about him getting the big sick and he’s also neutered so no puppies for this guy! He might seem like a happy-go-lucky tough guy but after I’m worn out I just wanna snuggle and keep your lap warm. Shhh don’t tell the other dogs he’s a big softie

Marissa Rath

Hello! My name is Marissa Rath. I’m a single-parent raising a 4-year old son and two dogs. Kopa is a four year old Chiweenie. I took him and his sister in after finding out the abuse they had suffered and that they were going to be put-down. I ended up finding a home for the female but Kopa grew very attached to my son and vice-versa so he was here to stay. Amelia is a two year old Golden Retriever/Bulldog mix that looks nothing like either breed. I had fostered her and her ten puppies for another rescue and once all the puppies found forever homes, I kept her. I’ve been part of the rescue community for about four years and enjoy every second of it. I work full-time for an insurance company as a claims benefit specialist and part-time cutting hair. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for nine years. In my spare time, I love to cook and have been a vegetarian for thirteen years. I live for my daily coffee and you can find me most happy with my nose buried in a book. I am a certified holistic health coach and a wellness advocate for doTERRA Essential Oils. I am also certified in holistic tarot and crystal healing.

Melissa Carson

Hello! I am Melissa Carson. I’m married with a 4-year old son and two dogs. Goose is a Golden Retriever and Rooster is an English Mastiff. I work full-time at an engineering firm and in my spare time I spend time with my family and dogs, playing volleyball, and shooting. My family loves to camp in the summer and we have a large backyard to spend time in with friends. I started fostering for another rescue a few years ago and got to see a senior dog find his forever family. After that, I was hooked on the feeling of pure joy of seeing the connection between dog and human come alive.

Tiffany Christensen

Hello! My name is Tiffany Christensen. I have been involved in animal rescue and dog training for over 15-years. After witnessing firsthand the hundreds of adoptable dogs being euthanized for behavioral problems that could be easily corrected, I began working with rescues to help rehabilitate and train their harder-to-adopt dogs to overcome their problems and become more likely to be adopted. I am an advocate for the No-Kill Initiative and firmly believe that all dogs deserve a chance at life. I moved to North Dakota in 2010 and fell in love with the area. In 2016, I opened Kanine Kingdom which offers doggy daycare, kennel-free boarding, and scientific based dog training to the Williston area. I currently live in Willison, ND with 9-dogs that I affectionately call my ‘kids’. Hunter is a 12-year old Labrador. Gunner is a 6-year old Mastiff/Lab mix. Rhaurie is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound. Freddie is a 3-year old Irish Wolfhound/Lab mix. Cooper is a 12-year of Bichon. Lucy is a 3-year old Pomeranian/Dachshund mix. Ethel is an 8-year old Chihuahua. Ayana is a 6-year old Irish Wolfhound and Katie is a 1-year old Pitbull mix.
